What is a root canal procedure?

Root canal procedures, or endodontics, is a treatment for the inner pulp of the tooth. They are performed to save teeth from extraction. The dentist or endodontist, a root canal specialist, cleans out the decayed or damaged pulp without breaking the exterior of the tooth root. The cleaned root canal is filled with a bio-compatible rubber-like material called gutta-percha. They are also performed for patients with damaged teeth caused by accidents or fractures. The procedure takes one to two hours to complete.

What are the types of root canal procedures?

Primary root canal treatments are performed using stainless steel files. Stainless steel files could remove only a small amount of infection and could easily break. The more advanced and flexible nickel titanium files do not break easily and are able to clean the entire infected area easily. Rotary instruments used to clean the root canal are quicker than manual instruments. Other advanced root canal procedures make use of ultrasound or laser to effectively clean the root canal.

Is a root canal procedure painful?

Root canal procedures are performed under local anaesthetic. Patients will not feel pain during the procedure.

What is the recovery time after having a root canal procedures?

Patients take about three days to recover after a root canal procedure. Some patients require a week to recover from a root canal procedure.

When can I travel by air after a root canal procedure?

It is safe to travel by air one day after a root canal procedure. Patients should check with their dentist before embarking on their journey. If they feel pain or discomfort, they should postpone their journey until it abates.

What care is required after a root canal procedure?

Patients should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should not eat until the anaesthetic wears off. They should not eat or drink very hot or very cold food for at least a week. They should avoid eating hard food or sticky food. If swelling occurs they should sleep with their head raised for a few days to bring it down.

What are the alternatives to root canal procedures?

Alternatives to root canal procedures include extractions and pulp capping procedures.

I'm very happy to be able to smile againBrittany, US, 03 08 19

My name is Brittany and I'm 37. I have had progressively bad teeth for the past 15 years. I kept having them fixed but they started getting very painful the last couple years. I saw several dentists in the states who recommended having them all pulled and getting dentures. I didn't like this suggestion at all and started searching for an alternative. That's when I came across Gabriel and Dental Pluss. After several months of us planning, we flew with our son to Costa Rica! I had 7 implants on the top and 9 root canals on the bottom along with four fillings. Everyone there was very kind and accommodating! They called in an anesthesiologist and a root canal specialist. They did an excellent job of keeping the procedures pain-free which was one of my main concerns. I loved being able to recover by the pool at the beautiful hotel! I'm very happy to be able to smile again and excited to continue my treatment in a couple of months! Thank you so much, Gabriel and everyone at Dental Pluss for all you did! We loved our experience and so glad God led us there!

My full restoration has left me with a beautiful smile and renewed self-confidenceSean, Costa Rica, 19 03 19

I have had two trips to Star Dental. My first trip lasted 2 weeks and during that time I was evaluated by Dr Sevilla and had an implant, 2 root canals and crown lengthening. I was fitted with a set of temporary crowns and then returned home after 2 weeks. I had a severe case of bruxism and the evaluation period with the temporary crowns was needed to determine my wear patterns. I was quite happy with the work done by Dr Sevilla and the specialists, an Endodontist and Periodontist, who were brought to the office to facilitate the additional procedures. After healing for three and a half months back in Denver, Colorado, I returned for the completion of my full mouth restoration. I had final crowns made, all the occlusion adjustments necessary made, and a new night guard made for my protection. My full restoration has left me with a beautiful smile and renewed self-confidence!

I was simply shocked and amazed at how he performed my surgeryH, US, 27 04 21

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for the dental work that Dr Urzola and his staff performed on my teeth. When I was informed that I would lose all of my upper teeth. Obviously, that was a shock... so I chose to get the dental implants. I contacted several dental implant companies in the US and the cheapest price I could find was $30,000. So I scheduled a consultation with Dr Urzola and arrived in San Jose Costa Rica on 7th April at 11:15 a.m. Dr Urzola had assigned a personal driver to ensure I had transportation to and from my appointments as well as my errands. The driver, Adrian Passaperra of DocTravelCR was simply indispensable. He is very good at the services that he provides. After taking me to my hotel room to check in Dr. Urzola had made an appointment to see me at 1500 hours. Little did I know that seven teeth would be extracted and a complete set of upper dental implant receptacles would be installed in 4 hours that same afternoon. I was simply shocked and amazed at how he performed my surgery in such an outstanding manner and in a short time. In conclusion, I arrived CR on April 7 and seven days later I was returning home with a beautiful set of natural-looking dental implants and my dental problem was resolved at a fraction of the cost. Dr Urzola and staff is a first-class operation and I would highly recommend that you contact him if you are in need of dental implants or any other kind of dental work. Thank you
